Sorry I could not get a picture with my camera being down. So, I made a simple illustration of my South Holston BWO. Hope it helps! It is not a durable fly, but an effective one-so, tie extras if you plan on using it...

This is pattern I have been using and it has been good to me. Plus, it is easy to tie up.

Is the tail supposed to be that long?

Can I ask which is the best hook size for fishing in and around the park? Was fixing to buy a few, but wanting to know what size I should get. Thanks.

Best emerger I've used for large educated trout is a CDC BWO emerger. My version is very simple, using an oiler puff for the trailing shuck, BWO superfine dubbing, and then 2-3 oiler puffs for the "wing" on top... A Zelon or CDC spinner works great when spinners are on the water. For the dun, I normally fish a comparadun or sparkle dun but also like parachute patterns...
